Try the secret ingredient in the salad dressing that kids and adults alike would enjoy.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 2 head of baby cos lettuce, washed, dried, and cut into bite size
  • 1 punnet of mini Roma tomatoes cut in halves
  • 2 slices of pineapple in natural juice, cut in small cubes
  • 75g tasty cheese cut into small cubes
  • 1 avocado cut into small cubes
  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tsp pomegranate molasses
  • salt & pepper


  1. Carefully wash lettuce and spin dry in a salad spinner (if you don't have one, just pat dry with tea towel). Cut baby cos lettuce into bite size and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the lettuce. Prepare salad dressing: Add oil, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, salt and pepper into a small screw-top jar, shake to combine.
  3. Pour salad dressing over salad, and mix it with large spoons gently, transfer to a salad bowl, have it with the main meal, or on its own as a light dish.

Notes... A basic salad recipe that you can add any other ingredients you like to turn it into a super salad. If you have left-over BBQ chicken, tear it into small pieces to put on top of the salad. Add some pan-fried pine nuts or walnuts to have that nutty flavour too.
  • Looks great love the addition of pineapple in the juices


  • Looks fresh and inviting. Thanks for the recipe.


  • Sounds great!


  • A great salad for next summer.


  • This would go great with a cooked steak


  • Looks like something I could make


  • I like the sound of this


  • I bought some cos lettuce and pineapple so I am on my way!

    • Bravo mom :)
      I find 2 of the baby cos will be enough for 4 people, but you may need to just adjust to how many mouths you are feeding.
      I get the sliced pineapple in their own juice in a can. You can also add the juice to the salad dressing too.
      Cheers, Missey


  • I have never heard of pomegranate molasses! Sounds great though.


  • So many possibilities to add things to this recipe or perfect just on its own, thanks for sharing!.


  • Interesting recipe I’m going to give it a go.


  • I love baby cos, it keeps crisper in the fridge too!


  • I like the sound of using pomegranate molasses- yum


  • Wow thank you! I love the sound of this recipe!


  • pomegranate molasses sounds lovely where do you get it from?

    • I got it from an Italian grocer, but I guess you could also try all good delicatessen and see if they stock it, and it could be on offer at any shops that sell Middle Eastern fares.
